9:14 pm
reserves already resorted to tapping its long term storage tanks after russia cut off supplies over unpaid bills and this is creating unease in the u. or this is the block's energy chief good to know he says a domino effect is inevitable even for european powerhouse germany where the fear is that unless you create starts filling up its storage facilities it may start siphoning gas destined for europe and that warning has already been voiced by gazprom and echoing those concerns russia's prime minister believes that ukraine's troubles could balloon into a full scale gas crisis as soon as this autumn dmitri medvedev made just that claim on his facebook page so why is there so much certain about concern about a wider gas crisis in europe well to have a look at that question let's check out our map here and as you can see now the e.u. countries they receive their gas from russia via multiple pipelines the bulk of them though as we can see going through ukraine moscow house stress that these supplies
9:15 pm

9:16 pm
one way or another there's not to be a direct payment by merkel writing a check to gazprom or putin that's not going to happen but i think they'll be via the ukraine they will put pressure europeans will put pressure on the ukraine to pay the gas bill before october that has to be done otherwise european consumers will face high class spills as a result. telling tall tales on your c.v. could land you in a whole lot of bother at least if you're on the search for work in u.k. find out what punishment lies in store for a dodgy job hunters all the info on our website. and it's been more than a century since the idea of wireless energy transmission was first conceived but scientists are doing all they can to put a fresh spark into the idea and make it a reality find out how at r.t. dot com. and also there for you high caliber pictures here of naval drills carried

in september as more its birth is taking place in scotland which is why the queen is christening the u.k.'s new super carrier with whiskey instead of champagne poured into the u.k.'s defense secretary it's a demonstration of britain at its very best the royal navy has sixteen ships and submarines and two royal marines commando units based in scotland the s.n.p. has promised to maintain all military establishment in scotland in the event of independence but the problem is that at the moment there's simply no agreement over what would happen to britain's defense says if scotland were to leave the union the u.k.'s first seen lord has warned that the royal navy is already constrained by budget cuts and the split with scotland would further weaken the effectiveness of britain's maritime defenses since the s.n.p. say that they would abolish nuclear weapons in the event of
9:19 pm
a yes vote many questions surround the future of trying to end the u.k. submarine based nuclear missile system that station in western scotland tridents unique deep water location is of key strategic importance as it provides quick access to the atlantic finding somewhere else to park the u.k.'s nuclear deterrent would be a long and complicated process that's likely to make nato extremely nervous scotland's had a historical role in the royal navy at the battle of trafalgar almost a third of nelson's men was scots but if they vote yes to independence britain's new us super aircraft carrier. could be the last to be launched in scottish water says playboy. and early in my colleague kevin owen spoke with two british military experts about the possible implications for the u.k.'s defense forces should scotland separate the remainder of the u.k. will still have defense forces all i would say is that if you have
9:20 pm
a single unit tree force and you split it into two parts then it inevitably costs money to set up the other part with all the admin and things like that and it ends up less efficient so there will be less money effectively and we already don't spend enough on defense assuming that an independent scotland supplication to join nato was successful then then scotland would expect the rest of the nato organization to come to their aid and vice versa i think when we talk about defense and independent scotland all roads eventually lead to tried and now he said the government has said it would seek the speediest and safest removal of trident from scottish territory however there are huge implications in that because there appears to be no where the trident fleet plus warheads could go in the u.k. in the short to medium term and to move it would be hugely expensive and disruptive the cost of redeploying of the trident the ballistic missile submarines and the
9:21 pm
weapons is huge particular if you try and do it very quickly there are places you could send them to over the long term but would the rest of you k. be willing to spend that extra money that's involved to do it and i'm not sure they would the fifty thousand jobs are depending on the defense industry in scotland what's going to happen to those jobs do you think if scotland says we're off i've talked to the head of some of the big firms that have small offshoots in scotland they will move south because the amount of money available for procurement within an independent scotland will be tiny and then these firms go where the money is the s.n.p. yes campaign. does have to be more up front with exactly how it sees those defense industry jobs being either reorientated or replaced by other types of industry. as a round more global headlines for you now starting with a suicide blast that's left two people dead and injured three more in pakistan's
